Default Tech articles problem

I appreciate the help! I'm having a few problems with these tech pages:


https://blazerforum.com/forum/tech-a...em-test-36792/

Thumbnails there but picture links to open full page images don't work. Trying to use thumbnails doesn't work as you can't enlarge them without pixelating the details.

Is there a direct link to the full size images of those alternator test pages?

and

https://blazerforum.com/forum/tech-a...ference-60425/


Parts source listed is a dead URL: http://www.pcsconnectors.com/

Many thanks!

I removed the reference to PCSConnectors.com and put in google search links for each of the part numbers. Should be a reflex action for anyone at this point, but...

Some time ago, photobucket changed their direct link access and the thumbnail option now does not work correctly on some forum software. For whatever reason, even though the URL code specifies the full scale image, the page that opens is only of the thumbnail with 'TH_' prefix. In the future if you come across this again and want to view the full size image, just remove the 'TH_' prefix from the image file name in the URL at the top of your browser window. I am fixing articles as they are brought up, but do not have time to run through all of them to check for this issue.

Thank you! I understand the frustration and time spent updating URL's.

Yeah, I found the parts online. (amazingly enough by searching! ) Several places have them, even Amazon. Reason I asked about it was that link was mentioned as having the parts for 1/2 of what they are listed for elsewhere.

Thanks for explaining the issue with the thumbnails - that is a lifesaver!

EDIT: www.mouser.com carries 12059168, 12186568 & 12048074. All three of those were $10.13 shipped.
GM lists 12048086 for under $3 + shipping... or pick it up at dealership.

Take the rest of the day off with pay.
